mm/memory_hotplug: make add_memory() take the device_hotplug_lock
add_memory() currently does not take the device_hotplug_lock, however is aleady called under the lock from arch/powerpc/platforms/pseries/hotplug-memory.c drivers/acpi/acpi_memhotplug.c to synchronize against CPU hot-remove and similar. In general, we should hold the device_hotplug_lock when adding memory to synchronize against online/offline request (e.g. from user space) - which already resulted in lock inversions due to device_lock() and mem_hotplug_lock - see 30467e0b3be ("mm, hotplug: fix concurrent memory hot-add deadlock"). add_memory()/add_memory_resource() will create memory block devices, so this really feels like the right thing to do. Holding the device_hotplug_lock makes sure that a memory block device can really only be accessed (e.g. via .online/.state) from user space, once the memory has been fully added to the system. The lock is not held yet in drivers/xen/balloon.c arch/powerpc/platforms/powernv/memtrace.c drivers/s390/char/sclp_cmd.c drivers/hv/hv_balloon.c So, let's either use the locked variants or take the lock. Don't export add_memory_resource(), as it once was exported to be used by XEN, which is never built as a module. If somebody requires it, we also have to export a locked variant (as device_hotplug_lock is never exported).
